Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aerosols

    Tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere.

  • Atoll

    A continuous or broken ring of coral reef surrounding a central lagoon.

  • Coma

    The fuzzy, gaseous component of a comet’s head.

  • Continuous spectrum

    An uninterrupted band of light emitted by an incandescent solid, liquid, or gas under pressure.

  • Coriolis force (effect)

    The deflective force of Earth’s rotation on all free-moving objects, including the atmosphere and oceans. Deflection is to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Glacial drift

    An all-embracing term for sediments of glacial origin, no matter how, where, or in what shape they were deposited.

  • La Niña

    An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.

  • Lunar breccia

    A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.

  • Nonrenewable resource

    Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.

  • Nova

    A star that explosively increases in brightness.

  • Occluded front

    A front formed when a cold front overtakes a warm front. It marks the beginning of the end of a middle-latitude cyclone.

  • Porphyritic texture

    An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.

  • Recessional moraine

    An end moraine formed as the ice front stagnated during glacial retreat.

  • Spit

    An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.

  • Superposition

    In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.

  • Till

    Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.

  • Unstable air

    Air that does not resist vertical displacement. If it is lifted, its temperature will not cool as rapidly as the surrounding environment, so it will continue to rise on its own.

  • Urban heat island

    The fact that temperatures within a city are generally higher than in surrounding rural areas.
